Check the fuses first, if they are all good, check for a loose ground wire.

Where reclaim port is located & how to remove used fliud from 2000 ford contour se 4 cyl.

The ac fluid(gas ) never gets old as it is a gas . The oil never oxidises as there is no air in the system so it never needs replacing. Most problems with ac units come from leaks and owner interference ( replacing gas that doesn't need replacing) or over filling with the wrong gas or just not understanding how and why it all works.

Had new fuel pump installed in 2000 ford contour, now the gas gage doesn't work. Could it have anything to do with the way the fuel pump was installed?

Yes, chances are the float is caught on one of the baffles inside the tank, or the float could have came off inside the tank. Most likely the float is caught on the baffle.
